In 2017 we endeavored to simplify the rod line up while casting what works. We will produce 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, & 10 weight rods. The 7 – 10’s by demand, are bad ass rods whose design influenced the pack this year. All 9 feet and 4 sections in fast action graphite models. The blanks are black, the wraps are orange and now the guides and reel seat are in a non-glare satin black finish. We have changed up our adhesives and assembly process to lighten and strengthen them. The models are conveniently renamed MR4, MR5, MR6, MR7 and so on however they were born of Master Guide fabric. This year we distinguished the label by strategically placing our brand 18″ from the butt end. “I’m really proud of this design, it performed extremely well during testing and has a sleek look about it.”
New for 2017 we have added two products complimenting the rod as a “system.” Billet Large arbor reels custom built for Montana Rods and notched rod tubes which integrate the reel for quick set up, take down, and safe storage to maximize time on the water. The lineup employs a high grade cork imported from Portugal. We call it “cactus cork” and we’ve turned it to a slightly larger diameter than seen in the past and refined the grips dimension. The cork has dark burls that don’t dirty like its completely blonde cousin.
